We are currently experiencing a much higher number of females than males members. To balance gender ratio we are temporarily restricting our female membership (few exceptions may apply at the organizer's discretion).
We are temporarily restricting membership to allow for recent new members to become acquaint with the group. The 45+ SBSS group prides itself in providing a venue for long lasting memberships to take place. We accomplish this goal by monitoring the number of new members that join our family and allowing for those connections to take place.
This is a logistic approach, not a personal one. Please, do not take offense if your request is denied.
AND NOW, ABOUT US :)…
THIS GROUP IS FOR MEMBERS AGES 50-60. IF YOU ARE NOT WITHIN THIS AGE RANGE, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY. AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, WE ARE TRYING TO CLOSE THE AGE-GAP WE CURRENTLY HAVE.
YOU MUST ALSO HAVE A RECENT AND CLOSE-UP PHOTO AS YOUR PROFILE PICTURE (we use this photo to recognize you in large settings and for safety reasons). ANYONE WHO WAS ACCEPTED BY USING A PHOTO REPRESENTING A "YOUNGER VERSION OF SELF" NOT SHOWING THEIR CURRENT AGE AND PHYSICAL APPEARANCE WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP WITHOUT FURTHER EXPLANATION.
EXISTING MEMBERS PRIOR TO APRIL 11TH, 2015 ARE EXCLUDED FROM THIS NEW AGE REQUIREMENT.
The 45+ South Bay Social Singles (45+SBSS) is all about making friends with other singles, getting to know them and becoming familiar with each other in a safe and fun environment.
Since its foundation, the 45+ has created long lasting relationships of many kinds. Although this is not a match-making program, we celebrate the romantic connections that have taken place in the past and are sure to continue in the future. Members that fall under this category are encouraged to remain in the group, even after they get marry.
We pride ourselves in considering this group part of our extended family and once a member of our family, you will ALWAYS be a member of our family… Unless you do something really "nutty" in which case we will have to let you go.
We monitor our membership and accept new members only after we feel comfortable that the previously accepted members have accommodated to us, attended events, etc…
Every few months, we remove members who have not participated in any events for more than 3 months, are constantly changing their RSVP at the last minute or have more than 3 "no shows." Then we accept new members.
Please, it is very important that you read the section named "Pages" so that you become familiar with our rules and regulations to decide whether or not we are a fit for you before requesting for membership.
We do a variety of events: hikes, live theater, happy hours, karaoke, museums, music in the park, dancing… We are always looking for new ways to improve to create a more diverse calendar, to listen to members' suggestions and to do a lot of research to find fun activities to perform.
If you get accepted into our group, give us a try by attending several of our events. You will not regret it.
Hope to meet you soon!
"Amendment" to our policies:
There is a strong group made of few members that have been loyal to our events, attending many of them and/or helping us organizing them as volunteers. These members have also shown a great deal of responsibility by showing up to those events they signed up for or have changed their RSVP few times and with enough time to allow others from the wait list to sign up. They are committed to make this group a nice place to come to.
We reward these fabulous people by having preference to events when their names are in the waiting list. The organizers of the events can decide which member can be moved up the list to attend events.
Thank you and hope to meet you in future events :)
